Shopping around can bring travel insurance savings

Holidaymakers worried about budgets can make their cash go further taking time to find the best deal on travel insurance.
That is according to the Glasgow Daily Record, which suggests that comparison sites can be used to help holidaymakers find the best deals on their single-trip or annual travel insurance policies.
"Some deals will include travel insurance but often it pays to take out annual cover for the whole family," it suggested.
The newspaper also recommended that people preparing to fly away for a much-needed break think about going for an all-inclusive package deal and booking a hire car in advance for savings, if they think they will be driving.
Travelling during off-peak times (during school term-time), booking last-minute flights and staying outside of city centres can also help to make the costs of a holiday more manageable.
Earlier this month, the Irish Independent claimed that single-trip holiday insurance can often be more appropriate for people only planning to travel for two weeks in search of summer sun than an annual deal.
